Hazel Chua Website

Hazel graduated with a BS degree in Chemical Engineering, although she secretly wanted to major in journalism. Thank God she never stopped writing because as luck and a whole lot of work would have it, a couple of tech blogs took her on, more came a-knocking, and now she's got the best of both worlds: crunching numbers throughout the day while writing about all sorts of crazy gear at night. Find her on Twitter @gigadgetry and check out her portfolio at HazelChua.com.

Keyboard Waffle Iron for Keyboard-Shaped Waffles

Waffles with more ridges are awesomer compared to those with fewer of ‘em. That’s exactly what you’ll get with waffles made using the Keyboard Waffle Iron. For one, you’ll get more syrup with each bite with all those keys and all. Plus there’s more to go around, considering the size of it.

Eat the keyboard waffle whole, slather it with syrup, add berries, or bury it in bananas. The choice is yours.

Point and Shoot Flames: Pyro Handheld Fireshooter

You don’t have to be a mutant to shoot flames from your wrists. Sure, Pyro can do it when he wills his hands to, but you’ll be able to do the same, albeit by flicking a switch, with the Pyro Handheld Fireshooter. Aptly named, this gizmo is meant to be worn like a watch around your wrist. It can be easily concealed by the sleeve of your shirt, so it’s awesome for illusionists, magicians, and other performers.

Pyro is activated by a remote switch and you can shoot flames of fire four times without having to reload. Awesome!

50 Cent Hidden Blade Coin– Can Your Half Dollar Do This?

Not all coins are created equal. Specifically, this particular one that hides a weapon within it. Who knew something so small and discrete could hold a blade inside?

Split the coin down the middle to reveal the blade and use as you please, whether it’s to cut some rope or slice some stuff. Use with caution and make sure you separate it from your other coins though. Otherwise, you might end up spending it and throwing over thirty bucks out the door for something else that’s only worth fifty cents.

SteakStones: Cook Your Steak to Perfection

The perfect steak is subjective. What’s mouthwatering for me might either be too rare or too well-done for your liking. That’s where the SteakStones come in, Each one comes with a plate to hold the slab of Lava Stone. Throw the stone into the oven and heat it to 300°C and 350°C before putting it back onto the tabletop set it came with. Then bring out the meat, butter, salt and pepper, and get ready to cook your steak to perfection.

Cheers to More Booze: Fang-Shaped Shot Glasses

Getting wasted becomes infinitely easier when you’re knocking down shots in these fang-shaped shot glasses. These Das Fang shot glasses are brought to us by the same folks who came up with the Das Horn drinking horns. They come in sets of four (two for you, two for the rest of your buds) plus the stand because, you know, you can’t exactly balance the fangs on your tabletop.

If your poison of choice is best consumed in shots, then trade those horns for these fangs and start knockin’ em down.
